Excerpt: I majored in photography when I got my BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006, so I consider myself an artist rather than a pro or semi-pro photographer. My purpose in buying this digital camera was to keep up with the technology, as up until I got it I was using film cameras (two Nikons—an N80 and an N8008s I inherited from my father).
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, I Never Use Auto-focus, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
This camera literally started my photography career, and I never knew I'd be a photographer!

Summary: This camera literally changed my life. I never took a class on photography, I just ended up learning how to use this camera on my own. It's pretty easy to use, and it has been quite a life changer for me. Since I purchased this camera, I have landed covers & spreads to magazines such as GQ, FHM, Zoo, shot PETA campaigns with this camera & so on.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera on the advice of a friend. The fact that the D90 is a refurb did not concern me in the least. Yes it is not the newest model. But it is still capable of producing some amazing memories.<br /><br />The camera arrived in perfect condition. As in this camera easily could have been brand new. I flipped through the manual while the battery charged and then away we went. No problems with any component of this D90.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: At first, I wss hesitant to buy a refurbished camera, but after talking with other photographers, and taking Adorama's reputation into consideration, decided to the plunge. Satisfied!<br /><br />The D 90 is way more complicated than my previous camera, and I am not a techy guy. The manual is not very helpful, like the manuals of my 3 previous Nikons. So, I bought 2 other manuals, and between the 3,am getting it figured out.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I bought the D90 in early August as my first foray into the digital SLR world. I shot on an old film SLR Nikon for years and couldn't make up my mind until I held the D90 in my hands. It's a great camera IF you take the time to learn how to use it. If you intend to shoot in Auto, don't purchase the D90 (or any DSLR for that matter). The camera is only as good as the operator.
Excerpt: I purchased my Nikon D90 just before departure for a trip to Costa Rica. Even with no experience with a digital SLR my first picture was splendid. With the DVD from Nikon and the "Quick Start" manual I was able to get into the camera features using the simple instructions. In short order, using the full manual and its easy-to follow instructions I was able to take excellent wildlife, scenery, portrait and action shots.
